Maui to Use Stimulus Funds to Improve Energy Efficiency of County Facilities
The County of Maui is seeking proposals from qualified vendors to conduct investment grade energy audits using federal stimulus funds. Twelve county facilities, including fire stations, senior centers and a community center will be audited under the plan. The audit is expected to provide baseline energy data, physical condition of the buildings, and basis for energy efficiency savings measures. Funds for the audit were provided by the U.S. Department of Energy utilizing American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.
“This is a significant step towards finding energy savings for the County,” said Mayor Charmaine Tavares. “From this study we can make decisions based on data collected and make good progress on our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.”
The deadline for proposals to be submitted is 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 26th, 2010. Proposals will be accepted by the Department of Finance, Purchasing Division, located in the Wells Street Professional Center at 2145 Wells Street, Suite 104, in Wailuku.
Solicitation documents are available at the Office of the Department of Finance, Division Purchasing, or online at www.mauicounty,gov/bids.aspx
